Report: How Do Cities Lead An Inclusive Growth Agenda?
26 January 2017
Inclusive growth is a major issue in the UK and internationally.
The JRF research reviews evidence from international cities that
have implemented an inclusive growth agenda to ensure that economic
prosperity in their region benefits all.
The research examines ways of working that could be adopted by UK
city leaders and finds that:
- Cities in the UK have more limited local powers and
responsibilities, but they are sites of new devolution and policy
development, and there is scope for learning from ideas and
experiences of inclusive growth internationally
- Three key priorities are: paying greater attention to the
demand side of the labour market, de-risking transitions into and
within employment and building connectivity to enable individuals
and areas to access growth opportunities.
